Operators Lower Prices Slightly in First Half

Ian P. Murphy |

CHICAGO — In spite of rising costs, drycleaners nationwide lowered prices an average of 3.4%, according to the most recent survey of AmericanDrycleaner.com’s StatShot panel, a group of operators tapped to contribute financial information anonymously for use at the site.
Operators in the South raised prices the most, with an average 7.5% increase, while those in the Midwest raised prices 3.0%, on average. But in the West, operators cut prices an average of 9.0% — perhaps to spur sales after experiencing a poor first quarter.
